As children values are first instilled in us by our family, teachers, and mentors. As we grow older, those values generally stay with us. I feel that, value is necessary for our growth, for spiritual, mental, and career growth. I would like to highlight three values that are important to me; they are punctuality, forgiveness, and love.
Punctuality is as my greatest strength, since it comes more naturally to me. According to Webster dictionary, punctuality means arriving or doing something at the expected or planned time. Growing up, I used to be on time to be at the school or music class or an appointment .As long as my sister was not accompanying me. On the other hand, my sister was notorious for being late. I think, it is one of the qualities that an employer looks for and I am hoping that this trait would take me to better heights.
The next important value for me is forgiveness. Forgiveness is that, to stop feeling anger toward someone who has done something wrong. I have to admit that this is the trait which I need to work hard on.
I admire Gladys Staines, wife of the missionary Graham Staines. Graham Staines along with his two sons was burned alive by Hindu extremist in the state of Orissa, India. In an interview for a local paper she was quoted as saying, “I have forgiven the killers and have no bitterness because forgiveness brings healing, and our land needs healing from hatred, and violence."
The greatest example of forgiveness we have is that of Jesus, when he was mistreated, and sentenced to a criminal’s death, he only had these touching words of forgiveness to offer: “father forgives them, for they know not what they do”.
Forgiveness to me is most difficult traits out of the three to acquire. I find it hard to forgive and forget the wrongs others have done to me. Keeping grudges on others, can affect you on a personal, emotional and physical level. Forgiving other people have proved, to be a surprising healing tool.
The last but definitely not...
